Immersive Virtual Meetings

Steelcase, a global design, research and thought leader in the world of work, and Logitech, a multinational software-enabled hardware solutions provider, today introduce OcularTM View – an extended reality experience that immerses people in virtual conversations that make them feel like they’re sitting across from one another even when they’re miles apart.

Ocular View is designed to enhance individual connections by integrating Steelcase hybrid collaboration insights and design with Logitech’s video collaboration technology, and supporting software like Microsoft Teams and Zoom, for people to meet with colleagues virtually in a more personal way.

Ocular View was first unveiled as a prototype at Integrated Systems Europe in 2023, as Project Ghost, with the intent to understand workers’ needs for better hybrid collaboration experiences. Throughout Project Ghost’s iterations, the Steelcase and Logitech teams gathered invaluable feedback for its enhancement, leading to the final creation of Ocular View, a unique experience unavailable anywhere else.

Enclosed in Steelcase® Everwall® (or Orangebox® Campers & Dens™ in Europe) to provide acoustic and visual privacy, Ocular View seats one to two people. A complete hybrid collaboration experience, it includes a comfortable lounge, small table and soft lighting to help participants look and feel their best. The space was intentionally designed to eliminate distractions, placing the technology secondary to the physical environment. Participants simply tap to join to start the realistic conversation.
